Do you know the legend of the Roquefort and its creation?
The story goes that a young man, who went in search of a pretty shepherdess, forgot in a cave on the rock of Combalou, his bread and his sheep cheese. On his return, he found his food covered with mould, but he ate the cheese anyway and found it to his taste. He decided to create other cheeses, in the same way and in his own cellars, and so was given birth to Roquefort!
The village of Roquefort-sur-Soulzon is known as remarkable site of taste and it is the only place where the real cheese is made.
